^ Fantastic Spin #1 in Prada. Each film presents a particular selection of AW pieces via a full 360° spin of high virtuosity in super slow motion. The elegant, yet awkward action is accompanied by original music composed by Danny Calvi.
Lauding artists Lernert & Sander, Fantastic Man Editors Gert Jonkers and Jop Van Bennekom said: “Lernert & Sander’s way of looking at fashion is both unconventional and un-anecdotic”, which is a fairly accurate observation. With this film, the collection is presented in a manner a world apart from the fleeting glimpses of the fashion show built on narratives of luxury, with the result that the garments become the focal point, not the myth constructed around them.
Granted, it’s tough to ignore the perfectly sculpted contours of the skaters showing it all off, but that, I suppose, isn’t really what’s up for discussion here.
